This recipe comes courtesy of Roman Meal. As one of the first companies to come out with a whole grain bread, Roman Meal is a brand that you can trust to deliver whole grain goodness to your family. All Roman Meal breads contain whole grains. They also have a natural balance of good fats (mono- and poly-unsaturated) and good (complex) carbohydrates. Complex carbohydrates are a good weight management tool because they take longer to digest, so you feel full for a longer period of time.
